to think over time, most big industrialized democracies because of the nature of our energy economy all have big state oil companies. so yes, in the industrialized west most of those states have privatize them, but even bp, as recently as the 1980's. so but only in america do we have exxon mobilize our state oil company. much more coherent expression of our national energy policy than anything the federal government as. and they are just as powerful relative to the state as tallis to france and maybe even more so yet only in america would we have a state oil company that lives in opposition to the state in which it resides. shrek stiller sent recently told scouting magazine that his favorite book is that this charge by i'm rant. that is a sort of touchstone for libertarians. it is an attitude of sort of skepticism, let's say generously toward the government that is peculiar. the equivalent company in france or italy or even in britain would be -- with have all gone to the same universities as the president of the united states. it would be buddies. it would be an interlocking sense of w

in the industry as energy as a service and that means that you get out of the old kilowatt hour paradigm that goes back to the 1930's where you are selling hours of power into a service approach where you are standard dyeing on site affordable tax and building retrofits as standard components of that service we focus on a no money down approach to energy efficiency and renewables this would not only require any kind of a late premium to the customers but a rate discount for those customers and is so energy efficiency with a discount and no money down and that is product differentiation that p g and e does not offer and utilities do not offer but we are uniquely poised to offer. this would apply to both the business community as well as residential customers. and so, as far as the approach to development we are really recommending an integrated and targeted approach to the resource rather than the market based additive approach which you have often see with conventional utility. the draft financial model that we preached was submitted a few months ago to the commission the power

and high rises downtown consuming a big part of the energy and so they are more sensitive to fluctuation and is rates. really though, as it would apply to residential customers, fluctuation and is rates as they occur on the market, would be greater than they will be under a regime that is based upon local fixed capital cost and is that is what the build out will do you end up with over half of the power supply in a fair short period of time. being behind the meter and being essentially hardware and performance based rather than market or fuel-based. so, from the point of view of the commercial customer, you know, there are now over a thousand municipallies in the united states over c c a service and there has not been to my knowledge been a proem with which the program commence with a rate increase now clearly if the program commences with a rate increase that will send a negative signal to the commercial customers the approach we are taking here does not require a rate increase which actually shows surplus and is potential discounts for customers that sign on for this product and so
